    Sentiment Score 91%
    Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following***:
    The Predator X38 may just be the perfect size and shape for a curved ultrawide monitor. Its 2300R curve is visible from the top, but less extreme than that of other gaming monitors. The curve contributes to an immersive effect during gameplay. The X38 is a great alternative to multiple screens, though eliminating that line is costly.
